Is this a must show proof of restaurant ownership to attend  :'(  or is it open the public?  :)

I do not own a restaurant but would enjoy attending.

Tom, honestly they are not open to the public BUT, I went last year on the premise that I MAY wan't to invest in a pizzeria some day. They will gladly take your money and it is a good time. Go the the party!!!!!!!

I've never been to Pizza Expo (even though I lived in Vegas for four years), but I have been to NAPICS a few times as the owner of Ryan's Imaginary Pizzeria. So my guess is that if you make something up, like I did, they're not gonna care. They want your money and as high of an attendance figure as possible because that gives them leverage to charge exhibitors more for space. They just don't want the general public showing up and making it miserable for legitimate attendees (which includes anyone who might read this).

So yes there is a registration booth there at the main entrance. where you can just sign up ans Pay as mentioned they are not going to turn yo away ! If someone really needs a ticket and has some interest in ( possibly  ;)) purchasing some pizza equipment I may be able to help with a ticket.

I'll be there too as I'm on the program. My presentations are titled Time With The Dough Doctor, Tuesday, March 25 at 4:00 p.m. until ??? Then again on Wednesday, March 26 at 4:00 p.m. until ??? These are sometimes marathon sessions so we never know what time we might be asked to leave the room.
Pizza Expo is a great opportunity for anyone thinking about opening a pizza store in the future, or looking for reasons not to. You can easily get both perspectives from the many attendees and participants. And then there is all of the equipment and ingredients, just mind boggling! Be sure to bring along an extra bag to carry back all of the literature you will pick up on the show floor. I know many of you are interested in different flours, all of the flour suppliers (even Caputo) will be there to talk to you and give you literature on their many different types of flour available. Also, if you get a chance, try to sit in on some of the pizza competitions, and don't miss the Beer & Bull Session, this is an excellent opportunity to grab a couple beers and casually visit with owners and operators or pose some questions to the moderator.
If you don't enjoy the show it's only because you didn't attend.

By the way, the NAPICS Show (Columbus, Ohio) is also a great show to attend too, it is a smaller show than Pizza Expo, but it is less costly too for both getting into the show and attending the learning sessions, so if you're in the neighborhood, and can't make Pizza Expo, don't pass up the NAPICS Show.

Too bad it's in Vegas, I would have loved to attend if it were in the Northeast. Speaking of which, John do you know of anything like this going on around the Tri-state area?

I guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed for a show of this magnitude to show up in the Tri-state area. I'm deathly afraid of planes!
